The following article, from tbe pen
of W. 0. MoQeeban, ot the New Tork
Herald-Tribune, may justly be regarded as the classic of the millions of
words that have been written about
Captain Charles Lindbergh's great
It has been written that the test of
true sportsmanship comes ln defeat
This I a popular fallaoy.'The test of
the -ports-man comes in victory and
ln the aftermath.
Consider the case of young Captain Lindbergh, of whom they say he
la the finest ambassador ot ttie United States, His smile, which is the
frank and fearless mile of a boy, has
found a response in tbe real heart
of France. Its brightness hasdissl-
pated many clouds of misunderstand'
Ing that threatened to rise. This Is
because he 1 a sportsman > born to be
victorious and therefore pepared to
be maglnflcent In victory.

mpny of them remained magnificent
when they were made. It Ib no con
genial task examining the idols to
discover signs of feet of clay. Already sufficient time has passed for
critics to, find some indication of
failure in the man who mea ures up
to the deed—lf there had been any
weakness thebe.
But lt seems that In the hour of
victory, which is a more trying time
than the hour of-defeat, young Lindbergh instinctively makes, the correct
gesture.'They marvel at his; bearing,
They marvel at bis sense ol the fitness of things.
They forget that young Lindbergh
has been up among the gods while
the world pun beneath him. Blessed
with tbe clear, discerning eyes of
youth, he -cotjld took down aad 'adjust his perspective aa no mortal
who did not dare wing his way to
those heights could do. He saw tbo
world beneath him' and measured it
for what it was worth, without cynicism an wdltliout illusion.
For tbi work he .was equipped ln
the first instance wttb the terrible
wisdom of youth, or he would have
brought down nothing with him after
soaring over the way ot the gods.
Because be was so equipped he
brought down with., him understand-
ing, even as the young Prometheus
brought down the. flame. And- so
young Lindbergh aets and speaks as
one who bas added to the wi domi of
his age the understanding of one who
has seen the world from afar off.
There is no faith left In the studied
phrases ot the diplomats. All who
listen know that behind them there
is the cynicism of age, there Is the
hypocrisy ot the self-seeker, there 1
tike malice of the wrongdoer .or the
wronged. The spoken word is'distrusted because the diplomats have
spoken so often, and so often their
phrases have been meaningless or
. But tbe world oan under tand that
Universal sign language ot which the
most eloquent phrase is the magnificent gesture such as young Lindbergh's. ''.
, Behold Lindbergh now passing
through the ordeal by fire, the white-
hot flames of success. It is in thin
sort of cruclgle that you And the true
metal of which your man ismade,

adulation around him. Tbey are trying him witb flames of sudden
wtealth. Tbey heap honor after honor
upon the biasing pyre until lf tbere

of tbat pyre that fine, boyish smile
remains unchanged. The wisdom of
youtb lingers and with it tbe greater
understanding won from the gods of
the upper air. He still speaks and
acts as one inspired by tbose two fac;
Hermes, of the winged feet, alighting on a "heaven kissing hill," never
carried a more Important message,
even from Olympus, than did his sue
the least slgnlflcant part of tbe message is that It took the clear eyes ot
youth to see the wey and the indomitable spirit of youtb to keep on it to
the end.
Still puzzling oyer the achievement
and the bearing of young Lindbergh
after it, they have agreed that it was
■ tbe deed, of a sportsman.-. Accepting;
(his, Lindbergh lias made and dignified what we, call sail sportsmanship.
This, the • perfect-' sportsman, has
made a godlike quality in showing
how a sportsman should win.

mayors, racetrack gamblers and representatives of all tbe callings that;
come   under, the   generic   term   of"
sporting gentelmen hastened to agree |
with Ambassador Herrick.   They took
it as a graceful acknowledgement of
the Importance of their petty business..
There are sporting men and sportsmen. There are those who frankly
make it a business and there are
those who are too hypocritical to
be tbat frank. As a sportsman young
Lindbergh stands alone, quite ns
alone as when he was hidden by the
mists of the mid-Atlantic listening to
the hum of his engines and the rustling of the-death angel's wings.
This interpretation of Ambassador
Merrick's trtf>ute to sportsmanship
Indicate tshe petty minds of those
who followl what we call sport. They
would compare the sportsman of the
sky with the plump athlete paid huge
sums for making puny motions at a
ball with a stick, with the pugilist
who (according to Mr. Brisbane, who
is right always, but especially In this
instance) would: be no match for a
gorilla, with the fat magnate maundering over -the noble achievements
of baseball and with the gambler who
never took took a chance unless he
thought   that  he   had an ace in the
They cannot understand this young;
man who would make i-his magnificent gesture hlmply because he was
born for tt. Those whose feet are
bound to the clay from which they
were made never will understand the
sport for the sport's sake.
They must, ta their vanity, take
the bow, and the smaller the achieve'
ment the bigger flourish to the bow.
The apes chatter, "Oh, yes. We, too,
are godB.'
Will this achievement and tne
bearing of the *r-JoHsmbn who won
the greatest sporting victory bring
about a sane' sense of values? I
doubt it because tae world, is old and
sees hazily through the fllm . that
comes with age, and its comparative
senility cannot grasp things with the
clear-eyed wisdom ot youth-

Only a lew dared quote odds after
young Lindbergh had disappeared
into the mists that still hide the free

The traveler in Germany who, al
Whitsuntide, is within reach of Roth-
enburg ob-der-Tauber.-hould set aside
all other plans and visit thiB perfect
medieval-called town to witness a
unique festival, so picturesque and so
pleasantly diverting as to have no
equal in continental Europe. On this
occasion the city does honor to the
man Who took the biggest drink in ail
history, bar none! Thereby he saved
the lives of RothenburgSs town council and obtained mercy for his fellow
This » the story:
During the Thidty Years' war Roth-
enburg felt secure behind her great
wall, with her towrs well placed for
defense; witb her wide, and at that
time very wet, moat; with her citizen.
ry trained to arms and loving nothing
better than a good fight, and with a
garrison of professional soldiers,
Swedish force sent up to help theRoth
enburgers against the enemy. But
the city was besieged by no less a
general than Tilly himself, who
brought up his whole army of 40,000
and swore to capture the town and
deal with it as he had already dealt
with hapless Magdeburg.
Tilly's cannon battered at tbe walls
and the light artillery of the city's
towers was powerless to silence the
heavier guns of the besiegers; but
whenever a breach was made and Til
ly'ssoldlers attacked, ln hand-to-hand
fighting, they were beaten off by the
intrepid townsmen.
Tilly warned the city that capture
was inevitable and that the only salvation of the citizens lay in surrender; ' but they would none of tt. At'
laat one ot the assailant's cannon, by
a lucky shot, exploded the Rothenburg
powder magazine. Even tben the
doughty burghers refused to sun-en
der, but with dauntless courage continued the band-to-hand fighting. It
was left to the garrison ot mercen
aries to hang out the white flag.
Tilly Was so enraged at the prolonged resistance of the town that,
after he had taken possession of it
and allowed the surrenderiing Swedes
to march out in safety, he summoned
the members ot the town council and
informed them that they were all to
be hanged. But, moved by the pleas
of their wives and daughters, the con
queror at langth mitigated tbis sentence and announced tbat he would
hang only four. He gave the council
permission to cast lots to see who of
their number should die.
Whereupon the undismayed council stood up and refused the marshal':;
"mercey,"saying they would all live
or they would all die, but there would
be no lot-casting among them at Tilly's bidding.
At this point in the proceedings, a
diversion was created by the appearance of the town Pokal, the state
beaker, a huge three-quart glass tilled with the town's best wine, Tilly
and his seven aides drank and drank
again. Tbe Pokal went around twice
and still It was not empty.
Perhaps the wine softened Tilly's
heart! At all events, be cast a grim
ly humorous eye over the council and
swore that nlf there were any ma
among them who could empty the
famous Pokal at one draft the council would be spared and mercy would
be shown to thb citizenry.
The proposal did not seem to offer
much ot a chance to the staunch patriots even though the Rothenburgers
were supposed to be as good drinkers
as fighters; but at last one brave soul,
ex-Bui-gomaater Oeorge Nusch, said
he would make a try, and intimated
that If he failed he'd Just as soon be
hanged drunk assober.
The keeper of the town cellar re
filled the beaker, and Oeorge Nusch
lifted It—and-drank—and drank—and
drank—and drank. One quart, two
quarts and a half, three quarts-
down lt went to the very last drop!
And with the lat srdop Nusch fell
senseless at the feet of the conquer
tag general, while a cheer went up
from those he had saved from the
hangman s noose.
It to gratifying to relate that NuBch
came to presently and suffered no ill
egects from his draft
Tilly was as good as his word-
nearly. He spared the Rothenburgers'
lives, but he made them pay him heavily ta cash for his leniency, and he
turned the town over to his soldiers
for a week of looting and pillage. But
Oeorge Nusch had won a place In history and ln the hearts of his countrymen that well deserves the annual
Whitsuntide party the city stages for
This ls the pageant-of Whitsuntide
which the tourist must not miss. Bach
year some thousand or more of the
town's inhabitants don the costumes
of 1631 and re-enact the whole drama
of the siege, the capture, and the
emptying of the Pokal—with the exception that the Oeorge Nusch of today doesn't have to drfgk the whole
three quarts. It ls all done with superb accuracy of detail, with spirit
gusto, and rare histrionic power.
It would not be possible, of course,
to give this drama as it is given, were
not Rothenburg itself stll very much
as it was In medieval times. To be
sure, the moat has been drained, save
far a pond or two, and peaceful gar-
dins and orchards grow where once
its tufbld waters flowed. But the wall
is still there, repaired and complete,
and tbe very towers where once the
arquebuses flred futilely at Tilly's
men at arms.
Moreover, the townsmen of Rothenburg, with splendid appreciation of
their native place, have refused to let
any modern innovations creep into
the architecture or the cltys streets.
fVhen a house or a highway within
the walls needs repairs, It is done ln
a way to preserve its ancient appearance. Rothenburg today looks as it
must have looked long before Columbus discovered America. Indeed,
parts of the city date from two cen-
turMsbefore that time.
This fascinating town is the sort
ot place to drive an artist mad, since
every corner, every shop, every tiny
red-tiled house, Is a picture. As for
the Rathaus, with its beautiful Renaissance doorway in the inner court, the
Jakobsktrche, the Franciscan church,
the Burgturm, the romantic Toppler-
schlosschen, and the small Gothic
Koboll-seller church, built in 1472 with
its amusing double spiral staircase,
which two persons can ascend at once
without seeing each other—al lot
these can be, have been, and will be
painted again and again, for the delight of all those who find peasure in
medieval beauty.
Below the Rathaus are torture
chamlbers and dungeons, without
which no medieval town hall would
be complete. The Rothenburgers did
nothing by halves; so their dungeons
and torture chambers are the last
word in horror even now.though the
rack and the Iron Maiden have been
removed. Criminals were executed
here by the sword as recently as 1804,
in which year Bavaria stepped in and
revoked the city's rights to deal out
such bloody punishments.
The civic pride of the old-time
Rothenburgers was a splendid thing.
They dug down Into tbelr pockets and
built tbe Rathaus just after a war tax
oi' 80,000 guldens had boon levied on
the town. They buit tihe Jakobs-
kirche, a high and handsome basilica.
In one of tbe chapels inside this
church is the tomb of Helnrich Top-
pler, an even greater hero in Rothenburg than ...usch. He was a burgomaster of the earlier days, for he
died in 1408, and to him the town
owed much of its prosperity any many
of its fine buildings. There are two
dice carved onToppler'g tomb because he cast dice for the city with
the Burgrave of Nuremburg and won!
When the traveler is. weary of
churches he will do well to go out
into the park and enjoy the view of
the town's steep red gables, while below In the valley may be seen Top-
lerB own castle, where he used often
to entertain his friend, the Emperor
After a visit to the park, a walk
around the city on top of the old wall
ls in order. This may be reached by
staircases at the city's gates. The
wall has a roofed pathway some four
feet wide, open on the town side only.
The Spitalbastei, the great bastion at
the extreme end ot the town, is an
epitome of medieval defense, with its
5-foot walls, wide ramparts, and
frowning old guns.
Ab a last and pleasing touch, one
should read the old Latin motto on
the near-by Koboll-sellertor, the most
picturesque ot all tbe city's gates:

Two Million Medals
For School Children
(Special Correspondence)
Ottawa, 'June 14.—vLady Willingdon
struck the flrst Confederation Jubilee
medal at the mint on the morning
of May 30th. With her own hand she
moved tae lever that imprinted on
the bronze the commemorative words
and designs that went out lh a batch
of 300 medals to the school children
of Yukon territory that night. It is
subsequently to give one every chool
child in Canada.
The ceremony took place that morn
ing at the Royal Mint in the presence of his excellency Viscount Willingdon, as well as Sir Montagu and
Lady Allan, officials of government
house, officials of the mint, and members of the press. Upon ther excellences' arrival they were taken on
a tour of Inspection through the mint.
The flrst point of call was a little
truck, on which wa heaped $600,000
worth of gold ln solid bars. Eacb
bar was worth more than $10,000, the
exact value being stamped on each.
Alongside were other bars, or bricks,
containing about 80 per cent gold.
Then the entourage passed on the
room where the moulds were contained. Men ln heavy woolen clothing, their hands covered by huge mittens, poured out the molten and hissing bronze as cooly as if it were tea.
-Here Lady Willingdon showed her
democratic plrit when, thanking the
workmen for showing her the modus
operandi of that department, she
shook hands with them all, grimy
handed as they were. She may have
soiled a pair of gloves, but she made
many friends.
Amid the whirr of many machines,
tbe vice-regal party watched the
gronze bars being flattened out and
rolled to the proper consistency. During her tour of Inspection Lady Willingdon asked a great many question
and seemed tremendously Interested
in all the various processes.
Finally the room where the medal
was to be cast was reached. Strong
lights were focussed on the machines
and on  tbe party and the cameras
tarted to grind and click as Lady
Willingdon  stepped  forward  with a
into the proper oval and then looked
for the assistant to give the sign.
Tills he did, the medal was struck and
tbe brief ceremony was over.
Lady Willingdon threw her hands
ih the air triumphantly and tben
scrutinized the first medal.
"Its fine of the king, but I havo
seen better ones of Queen Mary,"
Viscount Willingdon wa  heard to Bay.
He had a good laugh, as did others
about him, when he was told It was
Queen Victoria and not Queen Mary.
Some of the coins were immediately   put   in little envelopes to begin
which may be translated as "Peace to
those who enter; safety to those who

Arctic Lady Willingdon herself filling
a few. Meanwhile Mrs. Oeorge P.
Graham struck a medal, as did Mrs.
C. G. Cowan, wlte of the honorary
secretary of the jubilee committee,
I and so did Mrs. R. B. Osborne, lady-
in-waiting to her excellency.-
This ceremony being over, the party
in pected several other pieces of
delicate machinery, Lady Willingdon
being particularly impessed with the
weighing machine that casts tae overweight 25 cent pieces in one bin and
the underweights in another.
The serious work of tbe morning
being over, some fun was bad posing
for the cameramen. Lady Wellfng-
don held a bowl of shimmering
medals which she distributed about
to the party like the feudal lords of
old distributing large se to their retainers. Hon. Oeorge P. Graham,
and Sir Montagu Allan were the particular recipients of her excellency's
bounty. j
After the vice-regal party had departed, J. H. Campbell, deputy master of the mint, told the press tbat
the medals were going to schools in
Dawson City that he had built wben
he was ln the Yukon in the old gold
The medals contain on one side a
picture of Queen Victoria as sbe wa
ln 1867 and one ot King George as
he ls at present. Confeerdation is

Queen Victoria, and 1927 opposite
King George. <Sn the reverse stile ls

Confedeatrion date, a mint official
explained, lest some private concern
get dold of the medal and print them,
which would spoil the whole effect.
The medals were designed by Pritch-
ard and Andrews, local engravers.

the medal being struck were: Their

The result of the by-election in North Okanagan last
Thursday ne.ed not worry the Oliver government very
much. The return of a Conservative members leaves
the standing of the -parties in the next house the same
as at the last sessiou. The riding, ln straight two-party
lights, has always been strongly Tory., it has only been
when there were three or more candidates in the field
the Liberal candidates were able to capture the seat.
There was nothing in the campaign just ended to Indicate that the government party would emerge from the
fight victorious—except, perhaps, pre-election enthusiasm, a
Liberals naturally, but many Conservatives as well,
are asking what the Conservative party of British Columbia has gained under the lirst six months of Dr. Tolmie's
leadership. Most of them are answering the question
themselves by saying that at the last session'of the legislature not a single constructive idea came from the Opposition benches; but that leadership by the new chief
>n<as phrkseLd. by a wallowing in scandal which impartial
commissions siuce have pronounced absolutely baseless.
The general attitude of the cammercial man often, and
regrettable at that, is that he is not iuterester in politics.
But it is beginning, to dawn upon him that, for instance,
the Canadian-Australian trade treaty is an arrangement
which, as the chairman of the British Columbia division
of the Canadian Manufacturers' association pointed out
at Calgary the other day, "is vital -to a number of industries in t hisprovince." Coupled with this awakening
on his part is his appreciation of the fact tlH^t Dr. Tolmie fought this important and, for British Columbia in
particular, vital pact as strenuously as he could both in
the house of commons and on the hustings during the
19-25 and 1926 federal election campaigns.
If you feel so inclined you can drink your newspaper.
A chemist, addressing the iSelssmen s Association of the
Paper Industry, confided that it is entirely possible for
him to take his morning paper and convert it Into potable alcohol. This by addition of a little water—for adding water to cellulose produces grapesugar (C-6—iH-12
—0-6). Ferment it, distil it—you have alcohol. Since
there will be nearly 4,000,000 tons of newsprint produced
on this continent tyis year, the potential supply of illicit
liquor is tremendous. A law is suggested by the chemist compelling half of it to become blotting paper so as
to give tbe drys a chance.
Folks- who distrust banks, like the Sydney, Australia,
woman wbo buried $60,000 in gold in her garden, are apt
to choose strange hiding palces for tlieir wealth. A few
years ago a police court case revealed the fact that a
London woman kept her money hidden in her mother's
grave,in a suburban cemetery. Quite a number of persons seem to put trust in the security of cannon as banking places. In a gun in a fort near Shoieham, was found
a parcel of jewelry, and -in an old Crimean gun at Liverpool, England, a boy discovered a roll of notes, wrapped
Iu a soldier's discbarge papers, -to the value of over $500.
Jens Juergensa German engineer, has written a book
in which the produces Biblical references to prove his assertion that Moses was a "powder, nitroglycerin and

back the Egyptians by laying land mines, which he exploded by well-timed fuses. The writer says- the tabernacle was a well-equipped laboratory.      .
How the word "pump' came to be applied to slipper-
llk'ii stifles is not known for certain. Webster Is inclined
toward the opinion that it is a corruption of "pomp," and
that the shoes were sa called because they were at flrst

in the absence of positive evidence.

The weather bureau says that the greater numger of
mrore or less heavy snows come with southerly to easterly winds—i. e., in what is known as the "rainy' port-
tion of the cyclonic or storm area. These winds generally are relatively mild. As the storm passes tae winds
come fromthe northwest roughly, and are relatively cold.
In short, precipitation comes with relatively warm easterly to southerly winds, and clear weather follows with
relatively col ondrthwest winds. If, then, the winter
wind is frt)m the northwest, lt ls cold, and from the
wrong direction to give much snow. This, presumably,
is the origin of the saying, "It is too cold to snow." This
statement, however, is not literally true, for light snows
can occur at any temperature; and indeed, It occasionally happens that heavy snows occur when the surface
ls quite cold.

To a perverted feminine sporting instinct, rather than
a desire to save money, is attributed the epidemic of silk
smuggling into England from France, about wbich many
amusing inoidentshave been related. Women often tip
two or three times the amount of the duty to accomplices
who guarantee them success ln getting their Bilks tbrough
the customs agents. Onesuch woman is said to make
"smuggling" for women a business. She gets the silks
through by the simple expedient of declaring tbem and
/payingthe duty, which amounts to less than halt the
stpulated reward. Many women also go to much trouble,
such as making themselves uncomfortable with several
similar garments, to evade the duty on articles which ac-
.uallytare not dutiable.

It That Way" or Nothing Much Doing."
Repartee, tae "artless art" seems,
really to be a gift and he who has It,
ls fortunate Indeed. Jn the-Nine-'
teenth Century Sir Edward Sullivan
relates this bit of sparkling conversation that passed between Cardinal
Vaughan and Dr. Adler, the chief
Jewish rabbi. j
Tbe two mien were seated next to,
each other at luncheon. "Now, Dr.
Adler," said the cardinal, "when may
I have the pleasure of helping you to
some ham?'
The rabbi replied without a pause.
"At your eminence's wedding!"
It was not a rabbi but a bishop—Dr
Potter of New York—that once re-J
plied neatly and unhesitatingly to a
question that must have been almost
as startling as the cardinal's. A lady
had asked him why in pictures and
statues angels are always represented as women or as young men without beards or moustaches.
"Oh," replied the bishop, "everyone
knows that women naturally inherit
the kingdom of heaven, but men get
in by a very close shave.'
Wit is usually out ot place ta a
court room. Yet when It does occult seems to shine with added brightness against ibe sombre background.
Por example, two farmers ln tae west
of Ireland had a dispute over some

The two main faults to this system
as used by the average man are, first,
Ihe furrows of laterals are too long;
and secondly, they are spaced too far
The laterals should be from 200 to
250 feet in length and about three
feet apart. This will ensure a rapid
and even distribution of the water.
Many farmers turn the water on
and leave it to take care of itsefl,
trusting that the water will somehow
find its way over the piece to be irrigated. This ls a great mistake, and
accounts for great loss of water, as
well as unevenness In water distribution,, and the resultant uneven crop.
Over-irrigation is detrimental, as
when the ground is saturated the
.plants do not function properly. On
the other hadii the farmer should not
delay irrigation expecting it to rain,
as experience has shown t hat the
light summer rains ln this province
are soon absorbed and evaporated.
There is a strong tendency not to
disturb tbe irrigation furrow once it
is set. With hoed crops this is a
mistake. The ground should be cultivated before irrigation to loosen lt
and make it more receptive. Following irrigation it should be cultivated
to make the soil mulch, and conserve

Among those arriving ln the Okanagan this week were Messrs. R. J. McDougail, news editor of the Province;
'•Yank Banks, formerly of Penticton,
and VS. J. Mclntyre, a pioneer resident of Peachland and now living at

The 500-mile auto trip from Vancouver provides a wonderful variety
of scenery, said the visitors. Front the
rocky gorges and lofty elevations of
the Fraser canyon, the motorist
passes on to pastoral views along the
North Thompson and the lake and
mountain vistas of the Okanagan.      i
The new road should bring thousands of visitors to this section of the
province. While at present a lengthy
detour from Lytton north to Lillooet
and Pavilion is necessary, this particular section of highway bas its own
attractions. Wbile narrow and steep,
clinging to the precipitous sides of
huge rock bluffs overhanging the Fraser, it has aflrm roadbed and is perfectly safe for the driver.
By next year, it is expected the cutoff from Lytton to Spence's Bridge
will be finished, thus reducing the
Vancouver-Penticton distance at least
50 miles.
The section of the permanent highway from Hope on to Lytton gios
promise of a splendid road, sufficiently wide for cars to pass at any point
and with light grades. 'Some heavy
shale from Boston Bar to Lytton
makes the going a little heavy at present at that point The old raod b e-
tween Rosedale and Hope is also
rather rough in spots.
From Pavilion down to Cache creek
the road is in very fair condition. At
Cache creek the old Coriboo road
from Ashcroft north is reached, giving the otorist opportunity to run
along at 40 miles an hour. From
Savona to Kamloops a new location
would be desirable.

Kamloops to the Okanagan. While
